Yesterday was beautiful so beautiful full of medicine, teachings, stories and prayers.
It was such an honor to carry the Eagle staff for the first time.
I was praying for our Earth, praying for Camp Yalui where I cut down the tall grass and uncovered my ancestors graves just with a machete as I worked the land. Not a day goes by that I think of my Carrizo family, I miss each and every one of you.
I even sang the deer song as I carried the staff along the way
I prayed for the Tap Pilam to win the fight against the injustice that the Alamo Trust Fund has done against them
This year was the first year that they did not let the Tāp Pīlam Coahuiltecan Nation did not go inside San Antonio Mission De Valero for the prayer service to commemorate the reburial service conducted by the Tāp Pīlam of 1995.
They are on the verge of taking them into federal court over their denial of equal treatment and due process regarding the cemetery that is on the Alamo Complex.
The lawsuit is 30 years in the making, and did not want to go to Federal Court but at this point, all other options have been exhausted.
We need all the support we can get to help win this fight.
I’m asking all First Nation People to donate to my people @carrizo.comecrudo.nation & the @tappilamnation. and help us win this fight against the Border Wall and the Alamo Trust Fund.
